As much as we love watching movies, it's also not lost upon us that the process of making films can be as stressful as it is long and chaotic. Legendary filmmaker Francois Truffaut felt the need to lampoon such behind-the-scenes antics in Day for Night, and we're thankful that he did.
Set against the production of a fictional movie called Meet Pamela, Truffaut's hilarious, zany meta-comedy has a blast satirizing privileged actresses abusing alcohol more than the production's script, closed-door love affairs that impede upon a director's mission, and other on-set follies that undoubtedly occur on a good 60% of the films we all consume on a daily basis.
